    Awful!!! So I made this for Christmas along with a coconut carrot cake, pecan carrot cake, coconut cake, pumpkin pie, rice krispies treats, tons of cookies etc....I made a huge buffet for all company to have access too, 5 kids 5 adults, not one person ate the cake, there was one piece missing come the end of the holiday while nothing else was left. So I tried it, the reason no one ate it is because it taste like play dough :( It was awful!!! So bad so that I couldn't get the flavor off my tongue. This is definitely not the Soda Cakes our grandmothers use to make
